Moulamein Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

The Moulamein Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMS&P) was prepared for Murray River Council and the NSW state government. The study area focused on the township of Moulamein, which is located on the confluence of the Edward River and Billabong Creek. The town is surrounded by three levee systems: the northern levee system around the village centre, the southern levee system around primary production land and the water treatment plant, and the western levee system around Moulamein Bowling Club.

The Moulamein FRMS&P followed on from the Moulamein Flood Study (HydroSpatial, 2019), which defined the existing flood behaviour across the study area. The outcomes of the Moulamein FRMS&P include:

  • Identification of potential flood mitigation measures;

  • Estimation of the cost to undertake the potential mitigation measures;

  • Assessment of the benefit-cost of the potential mitigation measures;

  • Recommendations on mitigation measures to be implemented; and

  • Providing input into the priorities and timing on implementation of recommended mitigation measures.
